[texts]ERIC ED274461: Benefits of Structured Field Trip Activities on Performance on the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test (PPVT) among a Group of Black Preschoolers. - ERIC
Preschoolers are taken on many field trips during the course of their preschool experience.

Intuitively, educators tend to agree that field trips are beneficial to children. However, findings of relevant studies are inconclusive on this point. The purpose of this study was to determine whether field trips with prior and follow-up activities had a more positive effec...
